can you please explain about problem. i could not understand it clearly. that's why – Kumar Dec 23 '11 at 7:55
VirtualBox uses kernel modules what has to compiled for the actual system and loaded by an init script. It seem it isn't done yet. – Stone Dec 23 '11 at 7:58

It seems that the kernel header is not installed. So, Install the kernel headers and reinstall the virtualbox .This will fix the problem.
